This morning, December 3, around 8:30 am I received a text message from an AT&T bot that my MicroCell had succsessfully activated. Two days ago I had performed a "hard reset," de-activated and re-activated the MicroCell, and watched the flashing 3G light. I left it plugged in in the event that something might happen. Apparently, after four weeks, something did happen. Due...

An interesting new development. Shortly after I got an email alerting me to your post, I got a text message and an email announcing that my MicroCell has been successfully activated. I had done a hard reset, de-activated and re-activated a couple of days ago and it's been sitting there flashing green ever since. It'll be interesting to see if it's still working when I get...

There are many of us in Washington, but I think whoever's looking into our situation is taking an extended holiday. Someone should hook them up with the folks from Texas who seemed to jump right on the situation, debug it and get their customers back up and running. Perhaps now that the outages are getting more widespread an actual network tech will be assigned to do some...

Also, if your only cell service is your MicroCell, you won't be able to receive text messages when it's down. We're very lucky that many of the people we send text messages to can use Apple's iMessage service so, even though our MicroCell is still non-functional after an entire month, with no apparent progress being made to track down the problem, we can at least send tex...

The continuing response from AT&T has been the usual script performance. I'm happy that my ISP is staying in touch with them, but it's clear that they view their customers as "lusers."

Agreed, absolutely. I've already reconfigured my router in preparation for making that change this evening.

I feel your pain! Mysteriously, mine came online two nights ago. The next day an AT&T tech called me and asked if I was still having problems. I hadn't been home yet, so, as far as I knew it was still running. But when I got home it was down again. So, I called them back this morning. The tech said she could see that I had an "unstable" Internet connection (whatever that ...

As suddenly and mysteriously as the box stopped working two weeks ago, it has started working again. Some time overnight something somewhere other than my house changed and the MicroCell was online this morning. No word from AT&T or my ISP, but it's still early. We'll see how long it lasts.

My ISP is awesome! They've always been very helpful and supportive. In this case, my problem is not isolated. Quite a few people across the state, all connected to this ISP have had their MicroCells go down pretty much simultaneously. The ISP has worked with all of us to verify that our setups are correct, that they in fact have all of the appropriate ports open, etc. the...

GPS lock doesn't really seem to be a problem for me. I get to the flashing G3 light with everything else solid well within 3 minutes consistently, but I'm willing to try anything to help. I'm still convinced that AT&T has changed something, with the remote possibility that something may have changed with my ISP, although I'm confident that they've done an extremely thorou...

Although I believe that I have a good strong GPS signal, and the box has worked well for over a year, I decided to spend the $6 and order an external antenna. It can't hurt and can only eliminate one more potential problem area. I really hope that the service returns to normal before I get the antenna. I'll continue to post updates.
